Help running IM in Windows XP

Post by SharkD » 2006-07-30T13:22:53-07:00

Hi, first post.

I can't seem to be able to run ImageMagick. I have Windows XP SP2.

Symptoms:

I run a command from the command-line or a batch file and the command is executed over and over again, infinately (the command prompt keeps scrolling down and down, never stopping)--but no output image appears.

Sorry if I've missed something simple.

Here's my command-line:

Code: Select all

montage -channel RGBA btr_vadel1.png btr_vadel2.png composite.png
Here's a screenshot:

Thanks for the help.

Call your batch program something other than montage.bat. The batch file is calling itself over and over rather than the ImageMagick montage program.

Doh! I finally noticed that after about 30mins.

Thanks!
